and told u.s.a. today he will consider filibustering the nomination of brennan to head the c.i.a. that's an oddly reasonable request from an otherwise completely unreasonable person. we'll see if the white house gives in. >> next, the bipartisan bump heard round the world. president obama is known for his sitting fist bumps giving the greetings to kids, soldiers, his wife and even the white house custodian. before last night's state of the union address, republican mark kirk who just returned to the hill after suffering a stroke offered out his fist to the president and then it exploded. kabl ax m. either illinois produces the coolest senators or kids just love politics. it's about high time someone with real power stood up for the porched lawmaker. with no one in power willing to embarrass themselves, he's going to have to settle for brett. calm down, everyone, brett's talking now. >> hi. by now, eve all seen the marco rubio speech last night and when he paused to take a sip of water. >> false choices like the president laid out tonight. >> yes it's funny that he stopped for water but
senator chuck hagel as our next secretary of defense. and brennaman as the head of the c.i.a. in a new t.v. add for the n.r.a., a gun owner is a proclaimed proud defender of the second amendment. >> after the nra's disgusting response, i've had enough. you take money from the n.r.a. and then continue to do their bidding, we're going to remember that come election time. >> move on is running a separate add targeting senator rob portman of ohio. the senator said he could get behind some gun safety legislative proposals but hasn't made a public commitment to any of them yet. we're back. stay with us. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com [ male announcer ] start with a groundbreaking car. good. then invent an entirely new way to buy one. no. no. no. yes! a website that works like a wedding registry. but for a car. first, you customize it. then let people sponsor the car's parts as gifts. dad sponsors the engine for your birthday. grandma sponsors the rims for graduation. the car gets funded. then y
doing here? there are various -- the u.s. military and the c.i.a. have used these drones to kill scores of high-level terrorist leaders. but there is a huge downside. it is the innocent civilians that are killed and now, it is a questionable use of them against people who are american citizens and the claim by the executive branch that they can do this. execute an american without any semblance of due process. >> bill: and justify it by saying well, we couldn't capture -- it would be difficult or impossible to capture them. and that they're an imminent threat. when you look in the paper as to what constitutes an imminent threat, it is not really an imminent threat. sometime in the future they might be a threat. pretty scary stuff. >> there is definitely constitutional issues here and whether -- just because this person is in yemen, we can kill them. if they were in the bronx can we kill them? what's the difference there? and also the blowback issue. many, many people believe that the drone attacks in pakistan have enraged the pakistani population against the united states. >> bill: some

review. instead of being the heads of the c.i.a., he should be executed into treason. we should turn that into a tribunal. >> that's what they peddle. stephanie: ok, let's end with linda harvey from mission america. what's that? >> one of those web radio shows that seems to be popular amongst the righties. >> he would cave in and allow homosexual identity and attraction to be respected and welcomed among their boys. that would mean mobile spiritual and possibly physical corruption, plain and simple. parents and grandparents in our nation are appalled at the irresponsibility of this potential move. the delay is not necessarily a good sign. what the national boy scouts may be hoping for is for more dialogue. in other words ways to pressure local troop leaders and national christian groups threatening to disaffiliate if this new policy goes through. the delay also allows homosexual groups to mount bigger nationwide campaigns to spin the issue as a matter of hate versus love and tolerance. those of us with experience with these folks know this does not reflect reality. stephanie: wow tha
